Verse of the Day: Matthew 6:19-21
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
There’s nothing wrong with having nice things. The problem is idolizing material things over treasuring what we have in Christ. It’s more important to focus on eternal things which are more valuable than anything here on earth that is only temporary. Start thinking about ways to use your money, gifts and talents for God’s purpose and make it a priority in the coming year.
Heavenly Father, as we begin to prepare for the new year, help us to not be tempted by the things of this world but to keep our focus on eternal things. May we use our time, money, gifts, and talents for Your purpose, honor, and glory. Amen
